Best Politician in Need of a Slap Upside the Head
Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake
Published: September 18, 2013
In 2013 Il Mayore has refined her imperious style, not only cutting city workers’ future pensions, ramming through the Harbor Point and Ticketmaster bills (so the venerable ticket scalper will not be bound by city anti-scalping laws), but also flying to Vegas to marry lobbyist Lisa Harris Jones (the ex-wife of Baltimore’s favorite demolition contractor, Pless Jones) to lobbyist Sean Malone (who cut his teeth as then-Mayor Martin O’Malley’s man at the city police department). As reported by The Baltimore Brew, Rawlings-Blake officiated the wedding not long before spending Memorial Day weekend at Harris-Jones’ Delaware beach house. She went back to Vegas a month later, at taxpayer expense, for a U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting. Would that what happens in Vegas stayed in Vegas.
